Independent organisation:

We can help you find grants and funding and set you up as a small group, company, charity or social enterprise, offering advice on how to do that and the paperwork involved. Plus we can also help with naming, designing, branding and marketing your project. 

Once set up, if you’d like to offer your services at The Old Chapel Cafe we’d be delighted too look at that with you too as we have several spaces to hire.

Let’s create a happier, healthier more fulfilled world!

Old Chapel Cafe idea we start that you can volunteer or facilitate at:

If you don’t want to set up as an independent service provider we can set everything up as an Old Chapel Cafe idea.

  • You can be as involved as a volunteer or facilitator.
  • We’d post the idea to ascertain interest for FREE on all our social/marketing streams. 
  • We’d trial the idea by hosting the space for FREE for 4 weeks, with users either paying through donations for each session or through ticket sales with a view to covering the rental value of the room.
  • You’d be expected to do some marketing in terms of telling people about it, and commit to the 4 trial sessions as a volunteer or facilitator too!
  • After 4 weeks we’d decide on the best way forward for the activity.
  • A really easy way to give it a go.
